Hey all, Just thought I would share my excellent weekend. I did the Steven Walters Snowy ride. Left South Gippsland on Thursday and set off for Jindabyne. The weather wasn't the best, no rain until Bairnsdale, then a bit more over the border. 600km on Thursday on the GSXR-750 made me a bit tired. Friday wasn't much better, left Jindabyne for Thredbo, more rain. Some of the guys did some honda test rides, but the wet roads and $5000 excess put me off having a go. Sat around in the -2 degree weather watching bikes. Friday afternoon cleared up so took a ride out to lake jindabyne dam(not sure of real name) This is where things started to change, the weather was fine, the roads were dry, the road conditions were perfect(not pothole filled bumpy corners like gippsland) The ride was only for an hour, but I started to use more rubber in the corners. Saturday was the best day I have had on a bike ever, the sky was clear, the roads were clear(didn't see anymore than 2 police members) The corners were sweeping, the throttle was twisted and the bike was leaning even more. The country side was fantastic, the roads even more so, these roads put all roads in gippsland to shame. Sunday was the 600km ride back home, not very exciting until we reached the border, sunny skies and smooth sweeping corners, this was the highlight of the day, very tempting to turn around and do again, but had to consider the rest of the journey. I will definately be going again next year, the cause is very worth while, the money raised from the Steven Walters foundation has helped childhood cancer death rates lower from 1 in 3 to 1 in 5, as a father of 2 this really pulls on the heart strings. http://www.snowyride.org.au/index.php All in all, the best ride and cause of my ridding life.
